December, 2020: Symphony No. 5 / Renchang Fu / Xiamen Philharmonic / China Record Company CD
Not too many recordings make their way out of China and Bruckner is certainly a rarity. But in 2014, the China Record Company released this two CD set that contained a Bruckner Symphony No. 5 as performed by Renchang Fu and the Xiamen Philharmonic Orchestra. The performance was recorded in concert on February 28, 2014 at the XMU Sciences and Arts Center Concert Hall.
The Xiamen Philharmonic Orchestra was founded as recently as 1998. Conductor Renchang Fu studied in Shanghai and in Europe under such conductors as Claus-Peter Flor, Sir Colin Davis and Jorma Panula.
